Prospect touts art's relevance
■The second candidate for
the Fine and Performing Arts
dean position visited Thursday.
BY VERONICA OAEHN
David Orr Belcher is happy
with his job as dean of the
College of Arts and Letters at
Southwest Missouri State
University in Springfield, Mo.
But die thought of becoming
dean of the University of
College of Fine and Performing
Arts is too exciting to pass up, he
told UNL faculty members
Belcher is the second candi
date to interview for the posi
tion of dean of the college.
UNL has been seeking a
replacement for former Dean
Richard Durst, who left to
become dean of the College of
Arts and Architecture at
Pennsylvania State University in
University Park, Pa.
Belcher, who has been at
Southwest Missouri State since
1994, said although he was
happy in his current job, he
wanted to interview at UNL for
There are perks that would
come along with the position,
too, he said.
The College of Fine and
Performing Arts was given $18
million last spring by Christina
M. Hixson. That money, along .
with the Research I ranking UNL
holds, is attractive, he said.MThe
opportunity to be at an institu
tion like this one was very
intriguing to me,” Belcher said.
In his presentation at the
Lied Center for Performing Arts
on Thursday, Belcher spoke
about how important it was to
educate people about the rele
vance of the arts.
“Discussing relevance is
uncomfortable, but if we care
about students, we have to
examine what we do,” he said.
Belcher said it was impor
tant for faculty members and
administrators to concentrate
on teaching. They shouldn’t be
bogged down by meetings and
It also is important to get
community members to attend
artistic events, he said.
' “You have to make people
see and understand what you’re
doing,” Belcher said. “It is going
to make a difference in time.
You’ll never have all the money
you want, but resources will fol
Belcher said he spent about
25 percent of his time at
Southwest Missouri State fund
raising, even though deans were
not encouraged to do so.
It is necessary at UNL, too,
he said, despite the $18 million
is uncomfortable, but
if we care about
students we have to
examine what we do.”
David Orr Belcher
candidate for Fine Arts dean
gift last spring.
"Yes, $18 million is great,” he
said, “but it's not that much
money when you’re talking
. about becoming a major player
in the country’s art community.”
Walker Kennedy, president
of the advisory board of the
Nebraska Repertory Theatre,
and a member of the search
committee that helped select
the dean candidates, said it was
important for the next dean to
help fund-raise. .
The dean of Fine and
Performing Arts wears two hats,
Kennedy said. He is the head of
the college’s departments, and
he needs to have a relationship
with places such as the Sheldon
Memorial Art Gallery and the
Kennedy said he thought
Belcher would be good at that
"He won't have trouble fund
raising,” Kennedy said. "He’ll do
a good job.”

I Recycling efforts to kick off
■ While football is played
inside the stadium, recycling
efforts will be tackled outside.
BY KRISTEN EUAS
Fans at Memorial Stadium
Saturday hope to cheer the
Huskers on to victory, but Dale
Ekart, the recycling coordinator
at the University of Nebraska
Lincoln, hopes fans will cheer
for the university's recycling
efforts outside the stadium, as
UNL, in conjunction with
Midland Recycling and the stu
dent organization Ecology Now,
will kick off the Nov. 15 America
Recycles Day on Friday and
Information and collection
booths will be set outside the
stadium where volunteers will
educate fans, collect recyclable
items and hand out free Pepsi
"We thought this would be a
great way to expand the celebra
tion. A lot of people are around
at the football game ... and we
want to reach a lot of people,”
Midland Recycling hopes to
interest fans through its tailgate
party, beginning at 12:30 p.m. at
530 W. P St., where workers will
be selling raffle tickets to the
Nebraska-Kansas football game.
“Nebraska is a big football
state, so we thought we’d try the
tailgate idea to bring in more
people,” said Midland Recycling
Administrative Manager Jacque
After the game, students,
faculty members and Midland
Recycling representatives will
round up the litter from the sta
dium. They will sort through it
“We hope to have some
results on what they threw away
... what was good and what was
bad,” Ekart said.
As well as helping with the
booths and litter sorting,
Ecology Now will be running an
America Recycles Day art show
and contest in the Nebraska
Union Nov. 13-17, where people
can submit sculptures made
from recyclable materials. A
prize will be given to the win
Anyone can participate by

"We wanted a big visual dis
play to make people think. I
don’t think people would throw
as much away if they thought
about it," said Angie Noe, proj
ects coordinator for Ecology
Now and a senior environmen
tal studies major.
Although fans on Saturday
will be focusing on the Huskers,
Ekart hopes to draw their atten
tion to the recycling project
“We're trying to change peo
ples’ habits and attitudes. We
just want to stir their thoughts,
even if they’re thinking about
the football game."
A wrinkle-free laundry deal
■ Procter & Gamble will visit
residence halls giving away
quarters and its new product.
Students in some residence
halls may be crowding into
laundry rooms next week to take
advantage of Wrinkle-Free
Procter & Gamble Co. will sprin
kle laundry rooms at the
University of Nebraska-Lincoln
with quarters and samples of
laundry detergent and fabric
softener Sunday through
Thursday to promote their new
Downy Winkle Releaser.
P&G representatives are
scheduled to be in Harper
Abel, Sandoz, Selleck and Burr
Fedde laundry rooms from 3 to 9
p.m. during the promotion.
Catherine Falcetti of P&G
said the representatives will be
available to answer students’
questions about how to wash
“We decided (Downy
Wrinkle Releaser) would be a
great product for college kids
who don’t have time to iron,”
Falcetti said she remem
bered always having wrinkled
clothes when she was in college.
“With (Downy Wrinkle
Releaser) you just spray it on,
tug on the ends of the shirt and
smooth the wrinkle out with
your hand while your clothes lie
on a flat surface or a hanger,”
Downy Wrinkle Releaser
lubricates the fibers of the fab
ric, breaking hydrogen bonds
that stabilize wrinkles, Falcetti
said. This allows them to be

Michael Hager, UNL associ
ate director of housing adminis
tration and information sys
tems, said anytime someone
wants to pay for the washing
and drying of laundry for resi
dents, “that's fine” with him.
“Colleges are a test market
for P&G to see if this is a good
marketing strategy for them,”
P&G representatives have
been on the road since
September and will have visited
25 colleges by the time they fin
Some students at UNL liked
the idea of a wrinkle releaser,
while others saw no need for it
"If you ever had to iron, you
wouldn't have to with (Downy
Wrinkle Releaser),” said Bret
Glover, a freshman mechanical
Kati Howell, a freshman
exercise science major, said she
wouldn’t use a wrinkle releaser
because it would take too much
“Normally, I fold my clothes
right after I dry them, and if they
are wrinkled, I don’t care.”
